Dear Whizz Pop Bang,
Isaac (5 years old) has written the following to share with you as to why he loves his magazine subscription and looks forward to receiving it every month..
I love this magazine, the last one that was sent had lots about space in it and I want to be an Astronaut when I’m bigger so I did lots of reading about the rockets and planets.
I made the solar system and showed my 3 year old sister the planets (she likes Saturn the best), I like all the planets but Earth is my favourite.
I have included a picture of the solar system I built with a little bit of help from Mummy.

I really really love your magazine. Receiving it is the thing I look forward to the most. I love it so much I asked my mum to make some science clothing for me…. so this month I got to enjoy reading your magazine wearing my science trousers. If you look closely you will see planets, microscopes and anything a scientist will need. In fact I think it actually has all of your science equipment hidden on it!
Thank you for the magazine. Arthur
I love the magazine because it’s fun and I get to learn things and my favourite subject is science. I like doing the experiments and testing my friends on facts. Here is my moon sand footprint and Martian atmosphere experiment.
Hi WhizzPopBang gang!!
This is astronaut Rocky’s photo for the Space Racers competition.
He thinks WhizzPopBang is “totally out of this world”!! … and here he is travelling to the moon (and back) to show you how much he loves your magazine! He is completely science and space-mad!
Tim Peake is one of his hero’s and when he’s older he wants to go to the ISS and do lots of funky scientific experiments! (Number one on his experiment list is to see how different fans behave in space [he loves fans and all things that spin!!])
His favourite rocket is the Saturn V but he wants to build a rocket of his own when he’s old enough – his own ‘Rocky rocket’!!. …I’ll make sure he invites you guys for a ride as a thank you for fuelling his thirst for all things sciencey each month with your fantastic magazine 😀
We love Whizz Pop Bang because there is so much to make and do. I loved making the solar system model, I even made another one for my little sister!
Whether you’re age eight or 108 there’s something really exhilarating about making paper rockets and imagining you can really zoom off into space! Which is why we’re over-the-moon happy to announce we have FIVE Space Racer kits to give away for our November online competition, to link in with the November issue of Whizz Pop Bang science magazine Planetary Adventures.
To enter this competition we’d like to know what you love most about Whizz Pop Bang magazine. Send in a photo or video of you with your favourite issue, telling us which pages you read first, or which experiment is the best or who you do your experiments with in your family and why it’s so much fun.
